Growing up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the multi-talented R&B/neo-soul singer-songwriter painfully shy and says she rarely spoke to anyone.
Writing her first song “Till It’s Over” at the age of 19, Mar1asol (now 23) is breaking all the standards with her new single called “Us”, a Valentine’s Day anthem deeply influenced by the R&B, hip-hop, and neo-soul artists she grew up listening to including Kehlani, SZA, H.E.R., Mila J, and Toni Braxton.
While she wrote the lyrics, the beats and production were created by her husband and musical collaborator Lucas Finocchi (aka Low.97beats).
Her first official album, ‘Beats and Donuts’, came out before and it was very well received as her single “Ladies”, which has won a lot of recognition from music blogs, radio stations, and magazines.
Now, she’s preparing a new album with new vibes keeping her purpose of making music ageless and with catchy song in every aspect, hoping for the good feedback she’s already having.
Maria dubs herself “Mar1aSol” after the artist name used by her mother, a professional singer specializing in romantic pop music.
“If you didn’t know that Mar1asol was from Argentina, had only written her first song two years ago and that English was not her first language, you would listen to the dreamy, easy grooving R&B/neo-soul flow type of music and think you were checking out the latest work from a professional American soul artist with years of recordings and life experience behind her. It’s sensual music created by two passionate, ultra-talented artists who are clearly in love. They’re the foundation for some of the tastiest R&B, hip-hop and neo-soul vibes I’ve heard in a long time. I think most listeners will embrace her arrival on the contemporary soul scene with open arms.” –Jonathan Widran
